dnicolaescu (1135) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JAN 11, 2015
BOTTLE 25 CL at 8,5% ABV. Some fresh fruity notes (not much of that dry fruit sweetness). Though it is pretty dark and big, you won’t find much malty or caramel notes. Instead, you get lots of spicy herbal hops with nice zesty notes. Very good.

33 cl bottle. Pours a dark amber with white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of malts and fermented fruits. Taste is slightly sweet with a tart aftertaste. The beer lacks carbonation and a head. Overall it is decent.

luser2000 (110) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 8, 2015
Nem tetszett. Füstös jellege és a citrusos kitárulkozása kitűnik belőle, de aztán itt vége is van. (Hozzá teszem, hogy "karácsonyi sört" még korábban nem ittam soha, így a műfajt sem ismerem).

SamTheBarrel (578) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2015
750ml brown 2014 years vintage corked bottle with a Christmas themed label rated 8.5% ABV, poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is hazy dark brown with a large beige frothy head that settled fast leaving a little lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel, muscovado, toffee, dates and a hint of orange peels. Flavours of caramel, toffee, dates, orange peels, spices, raisins and dark bread. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium-full bodied, smooth texture and average carbonation. Corsendonk Christmas Ale is flavorful, complex and balanced, overall a great beer.
